Nooks and Crannies

One of the cool things I love about exploring the Muskoka lakes are the abundance of hidden channels, islands and private bays, the nooks and crannies so to speak. Year after year I try to archive these places in my head, kind of like learning the streets around a neighborhood. For some reason it is very difficult for my brain to process these places in any uniform manner. Trying to recall exactly where I am, whats up ahead or even remembering if I have been here before proves to be difficult. (and I’m sure I have been everywhere at least once) Of course there are significant markers like that island of weird birds, the 7-slip boathouse or that shallow bay where I sucked up a rock on my Seadoo.

Celebrating 10 Summers!

We are celebrating 10 summers at our Muskoka sanctuary. It seems like we just arrived. A team effort created these sweet raspberry Martinis as a pre-dinner cocktail on the dock. The photo was processed using an iPad and run through the Camera+ app. Cheers Y’all

Fairy Island

I have been cruising around Lake Joseph for the past decade or so always discovering interesting places. I find Lake Joe to have a lot of hidden areas especially the islands once you get towards the north end of the lake. I believe if my coordinates are right this place is Fairy Island.¬† Waterfront property is very expensive in Muskoka and you don’t often find places that are boarded up like this one. I suspect some time in the future we will see this place refreshed to something more beautiful.

Shelter from the Storm

I would like to thank the owners of this boathouse, whomever you are. While traveling down the Joe River recently with a group including kids we got caught in a wicked thunder, lightning and torrential rain storm. It came upon us so quickly with the lightning¬† blasting around us! The wind and rain blew so hard I couldn’t dock the boat so I ended up jumping in the lake and pulling the boat in. Just as we landed another boat arrived with 4 teenagers that were visibly shaken. Fortunately the boathouse was open as we waited for the storm to clear. Someone from the cottage came down later to see if we were OK. Our apologies for the intrusion and thank you for the shelter!

Happy Canada Day, Eh

Hey hosers, hope you had a great Canada Day. This flag once flew over the Parliament buildings in Ottawa and now we are proud to fly it at our cottage every year on Canada day. I think these beautiful flags adorn parliament for about a week and then offer them to the public. You can apply here to get one but I should warn you its currently a 42 year waiting list. We received ours through secret Ninja sources.
